Question about Maytag MFC2061KES Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refridgerator & Freezer just quick working. Display panel is blinking 34 degrees on the freezer and 54 on the fridge. When I his the minus bottom for either it only holds that lower temp for a minute then goes back to flashing the #'s above. I pulled the unit out and vacuumed the coils then shot the rest of the dust bunnies off with compressed air, it was only about halfway covered. I unscrewed the back panel and the compressor seems to be running, the copper coils coming from it are warm/hot. The suspended fan next to it is running continuesly. The drip pan below it all is almost full. What is my next step, this doesn't seem to be working? Anyone have any ideas? My food is getting warm, ahh.

Temprature blinking


Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

It could be freezing up in the freezer part of the fridge, or you may need to add coolant or freeon.

Hotpoint fridge freezer freezer ok but fridge not working temp is always 21 degrees tried to set to 4 degrees but just keeps going to 21 freezer is fine -22 degrees


Merv -

Most manufacturer's fridges are designed for 34 degrees F in the fresh food compartment and 0 degrees F in the freezer compartment. Setting the fresh food compartment to a value lower than 32 degrees will freeze any moisture in foods, fruits and vegetables and freeze water in juices and other beverages resulting in broken containers, exploding cans, etc.

What you need is another freezer. Trying to convert a refrigerator into a freezer is going to be very difficult - especially without ruining it.

Good luck!

Freezer and Fridge at wrong temperture


How old is this fridge? Your themostat may be shot. Put an accurate thermometer in the freezer and cooler to ge the real reading. If they are the same as on the door then the themostat is probably the problem. If not, it could be that all you need is a new display.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator


I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

Freezer works fine refridgerator does not


problem may be that the return vent from freezer to fridge is blocked with ice. best solution is to switch off for 24 hours with doors open. 2 hours may not be long enough to clear this blockage
